Excellent, fantastic, extremely well organised 4 my needs as single, older woman traveller. (more)Viki Sinclair
We laughed, was in awe and loved every moment, we stayed in places we wouldn’t haven’t found or considered and we squeezed as much local knowledge out of our hosts as we could. Mind you they were generous with their sharing. (more)Barb Martin
Great Barrier Reef 4 day cruise in Australia
From
£1,029

Memorable parts? The weather changing, high winds and torrential rain while out on the glass bottom boat. First time wearing a life jacket was so exciting. Tips?

New Zealands Subantarctic Islands cruise, including Macquarie
From
US $7,500
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The wildlife. Tips? Don't go on this ship: it is old and uncomfortable. Booking a mini-suite was expensive and turned out to be most inconvenient. It was certainly good having ones own toilet and shower, however the bed arrangement was terrible. The bed was enclosed in a box with only a small corner free for getting in or getting out of bed. If one had to get up in the night one had to wake one's partner to get out of bed and back in again, as one had to climb... (more)Carole-Anne Fooks

Memorable parts? Mount Cook scenic flight and whale watching. Tips? Go! If you're doing the inland road from Picton to Kaikoura, pay for the excess waiver for the 1 day. That road is terrible. Local benefits? Yes, completely. Lots of cultural stuff but very sensitively done. Overall rating? 10/10 (more)Kirsty Millard

From
£2,025

Memorable parts? The Blue Lagoon Cruise, no question. We did the 3 day cruise 15 years ago, always said we would do it again, this time the 7 day cruise. We worried a bit, wondering if it would be as good, but it was fabulous! We would highly recommend it, if you like small ships. We also had 6 days on the 'mainland' 2 days on Bounty Island, it was okay if you were 20 (our guide said she thought we were 30)nothing on the island but the resort, and extremely loud music! We had a 2 day... (more)Ms Adrian Redford
Great Ocean Walk holiday in Victoria, Australia
From
AU $2,470
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The first two days of the Great Ocean Walk; also the Atherton tablelands stay. Tips? Do some research into precisely what's offered on each trip - the Red Centre tour wasn't exactly what was predicted. Local benefits? Yes, except for Red Centre tour, which relied a lot on Aboriginal culture and settings, but seemed to involve no indigenous people. Overall rating? Very good. (more)Anne Owers

Before the trip, Amy at the holiday provider was very helpful and informative. We had requested dates which conflicted with a holiday weekend in Melbourne and did not permit... (more)Alan Sherbrooke

Memorable parts? The tour of Kata Tjuta - Ben the guide's knowledge and experience was simply wonderful. I've never met someone who could talk with such knowledge about geology, widlife, country lore. Tips? Camping was a bit basic but a wonderful experience - cooking over an open fire under a clear unpolluted night sky was simply ethereal. Local benefits? Yes. (more)Farida Parkyn

From
AU $1,545

Memorable parts? Travelling along the Ocean Drive road and thanks to Pierre, our guide and driver, showing us places and providing loads of interesting information, which we would never have had doing the trip between Melbourne and Adelaide on our own.

A tremendous success, it was a small group, four of us and I thick I can say we all felt comfortable sharing... (more)Jane Jimenez
French Polynesias cruise in the South Pacific
From
£2,195
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The Marquesa Islands are amazing. The cultural shows and dances superb. The 10 mile hike is very worth doing but is not easy. Tips? If you are booking dormitory accommodation be aware that the top bunks are very confined. They are difficult to get in and out of (particularly if you are over 65) and only have a clearance of about 30 inches. Local benefits? Yes - as the Aranui is also a cargo ship al locals benefit. Overall rating? Interesting, but an... (more)William Bainbridge
